MOSQUITOES V/S HIV & AIDS

Medical experts have expressly stated that mosquitoes cannot spread HIV & AIDS virus from an infected person to a healthy one. I don’t know how this is true to the reality. When I spot a single mosquito hovering around my bed, I begin to imagine the reason behind it not being a mode of transmission of the virus. Medical experts indicated that the virus cannot survive on the beak of these tiny insects, justifying their findings. But how true is this remains a mystery!

Think about two people sharing a bed, one in HIV positive whereas the other one is HIV negative. What if a mosquito bites the infected person and immediately lands and bites the safe person on the body surface (of course sucking his blood). Assuming that this action takes place within a span of a second, could this cause a health hazard to the safe person?

Yes, I do trust the medical experts. However, if that’s the truth, then why can’t the same expert exploit and do further research to ascertain why mosquito beak cannot transmits HIV & AIDS virus. They may use the same results to develop an antidote for HIV & AIDS virus cure which could bring to an end to the menace.

I am just asking as a layman and not a medical expert.

  1. Mosquito bites are always bad news, but I suspect there is enough danger from West Nile Virus and the several known diseases carried by them to consider. I always try to kill them before they get a chance to bite and spray repellant liberally.
